    Australia is Expensive. It also has bad internet.

  1. I prefer the Phanteks case. Both are great for cable management.
  2. The NZXT S340 Elite in White is a fantastic case. It looks amazing plus it features tempered glass for the side panel which the H440 does not. The Phanteks P400s Tempered Glass Edition in White is also a beautiful case for around the same price. It comes down to your personal preference.
  3. Ryzen 7 1700 can be overclocked to match the 1800x. They are the same CPU except the 1800x is just clocked higher.
  4. No, in Australia, they cost almost as much as a GTX 1070 brand new if you can find them in stock at a store.
  5. I have used the h100i before. The cooler is pretty quiet however, the stock fans on the radiator do get a bit noisy. What I did was change the fans a few months later and it's a lot more quiet now. Also, feel free to follow me if you would like to remain in contact on this forum and receive status updates/topics that I post.
  6. Looks fine, I reccomend changing the case to a micro atx one because a matx motherboard plus a small gpu wont look that good in a big atx case. Maybe change to a Fractal Design Define Mini C.
  7. B250 isn't compatible with Ryzen, B350 is. Also, what do you think of the new RX 580 Sapphire Radeon in blue? It looks pretty cool.
  8. The H100i will be fine, it's a great AIO. It's up to you wether or not you would like to update your bios. You do have the risk of bricking it but as long as your careful, you should be fine. Look up a tutorial for your specific motherboard to help you during the process.
  9. Their isn't much difference between the 7700k and 6700k. The newer 7700k is obviously slightly faster so I would recommend that if it fits your budget. As long as your careful whilst updating your bios, you should be fine. If it is something you don't feel comfortable doing, you can always just purchase a 6700k and deal with the minimal performance loss. With the cooler, it really depends on how much you are willing to spend. You can purchase something like the NZXT X52/X62 or you can go something more budget oriented like a Cryorig H7. Let me know how much you would like to spend on a cooler and I would be happy to recommend you one.
  10. Actually, when you said "You have a RX 470 local?" Correct punctuation is "You have an RX 470 local?". An is the correct word that should have been used in this sentence. 😄
  11. Well they stuffed up.
  12. Firstly, the i5 7500 comes with a stock cooler and can not be overclocked. Therefore, it is unnecessary to buy an aftermarket cooler. Buy a 1tb hard drive and put a 120gb SSD in. Boot times will be a lot quicker as well as the overall responsiveness of the system. Have you already bought the GTX 970? And also, consider building a ryzen system with a ryzen 5 1600 and b350 motherboard.
  13. Fantastic overclock. It is very cool to see people achieving such high overclocks with older cpu's and being able to squeeze out more performance out of it.
  14. With those specs, I would recommend a 1080p 144hz monitor. Any monitor from this list should suffice -
